Business MeetingThe local and state resources below provide information for individuals that are unemployed, including employment opportunities and available State benefits. 

Family Leave, Unemployment and Disability
  • The EDD provides information and resources about disability and family leave benefits. 
  • The EDD will also stand up a one-stop shop for individuals applying for unemployment insurance and the new federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program starting April 28. The PUA will provide federally funded benefits distinct from Unemployment Insurance program for certain individuals out of work or partially unemployed due to COVID-19. This includes the self-employed, ​individuals who may be employees but who lack sufficient work history and independent contractors.  PUA benefits will be issued within 24-48 hours – not the traditional 21 days ​for regular UI claims.
  • The Economic Development Collaborative prepared a COVID-19 Business Response Guide to summarize resources available for employers, non-profits, self-employed individuals and employees.
